NVIDIA has finally announced the much rumored Shield tablet carrying an 8 inch display and a monster GPU. This will finally put an end to the rumors and leaks that we’ve come across over the past couple of months. NVIDIA is also selling a WiFi Direct based wireless controller separately, which costs $59.
The tablet comes with an 8 inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display, a 5-megapixel camera on the front and back respectively, the dual core 2.2 GHz dual NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC with the 192 core Kepler GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage with a microSD card (up to 128GB), 4G LTE and a micro HDMI port which allows users to output 4K content to a compatible TV.
The Shield Tablet also comes with the stylus that we’ve seen on the Tegra Note devices known here DirectStylus 2. The tablet also has front facing stereo speakers much like the HTC One M8, so NVIDIA has given much thought to the audio aspect as well.
The 16 and 32GB versions of the tablet costs $299 and $399 respectively which is quite decent considering the hardware it’s packing. The tablet is landing in European countries by August while the U.S. will get it in a couple of weeks from now.
